South Africa, Cape Town, 1 December 2021; NOW in its 21st year of representing international luxury brands, communications specialists ManleySocial has announced representation of the blue chip first-of-its-kind residential and resort development in Zanzibar;  Blue Amber.

Blue Amber is the most recent, and significant, property development of its kind in East Africa and truly redefines premium lifestyle and hospitality in the region. With luxury and eco-sustainable residential homes, this forward-thinking new development is touted as the largest residential and resort project of its kind in East Africa. Blue Amber will also feature Zanzibar’s premier island resort hotel; Shirazi Resort & Villas, which will be managed by NEWMARK Hotels and Reserves.

Ribboning along 4 kilometres of magnificent, unspoilt Indian Ocean coastline – and occupying 410 hectares of tropical landscape on the north-eastern side of Zanzibar – Blue Amber will attract property investors and sun seekers from around the globe. The resort will boast two striking restaurants, a spa, yoga pavilion and gym, as well as a beach club and pool replete with pool bar. There will also be an impressive shoreline aqua leisure centre where both residents and visitors may enjoy a multifunctional play space. This will include a comprehensive water sports facility, along with a barefoot luxury beach eatery and a selection of thoughtfully curated retail stores. The first phase of Blue Amber’s property development is currently selling and includes 54 luxury pool villas. The Shirazi Resort and Villas will launch in early 2023.
